|MY Frankenstein... inspired by the book's description, apart from the colour of his skin... cuz I hate yellow..|
I know that not everyone loves this book as much as I do lol
I first read it in a high school English class & I remember my classmates grumbling about how boring it was.
Meanwhile, I read it in less than two days.
(Even tho we weren't supposed to >.> The torment of being expected to not go on to the next chapter of a book you love just for the sake of a lesson plan? *scoffs*)
Frankenstein is one of my least favourite characters. (to be clear Frankenstein is not the name of the "monster", it's the name of the man who created him)
I liked him in the beginning- when he was a young bookworm earnestly studying old alchemists like Cornelius Agrippa & Albertus Magnus with no idea that their "science" was hundreds of years out of date. :)
But then he grows up into a weak, selfish, ridiculously dense man & I can't stand him anymore.
The creature on the other hand, is pitiable. He was made to be beautiful but turns out horrifying and is then hated & abandoned. Unlike the monster movie Frankenstein, he is very intelligent which just makes him suffer more.
He even managed to muster up some sympathy & affection for Frankenstein at the end.
And he quotes Paradise Lost!!
*sings* Who is the monster & who is man?
